This paper presents the development of a nonlinear quadrotor simulation framework together with a nonlinear controller. The quadrotor stabilization and navigation problems are tackled using a nested loops control architecture. A nonlinear Backstepping controller is implemented for the inner stabilization loop. It asymptotically tracks reference attitude, altitude and heading trajectories. The outer loop controller generates the reference trajectories for the inner loop controller to reach the… CONTINUE READING
